Having problems with your Dell PowerEdge 2500 Server ?

I can not find the power button on my mother board


Answers :

There isn't a power button as such on the motherboard. There will be a pin header that should say something like PWR SW beside it. The power button just shorts these two terminals out for a second to tell the PSU to switch on. You can do the same if you are careful. But as always: BE CAREFUL.
